( 2:39 PM ) teahouse
Only on the New York City Subway
Story #1: Overheard on the subway during the evening commute:
Two well-suited young men, Wall Street types, speaking to each other.
Man #1: Yeah, I heard Pride and Prejudice and Zombies was worth reading.
Man #2: I heard that, too. But I just can't bring myself to read it. I'm just such a big fan of Jane Austen's original book, that I think it would just piss me off to see what this guy has done to the story.
Man #1: I'm totally with you on that!
Story #2: This morning, a homeless man on the C train stood up and shouted, "Ladies and Gentlemen, I am tired and hungry, and would appreciate it if someone could give me a ham and cheese sandwich, please."
Apparently he thought he was ordering at a deli.
Since I had a bag of roast beef sandwiches with no cheese, I didn't offer because I hate rejection.#
I would totally get along with the guys discussing Jane Austen. I can't bring myself to read any of the zombie books because I love the originals so much.
Story #1 = awesome!
I wonder if he would've accepted a tuna or roast beef if offered?
He's not picky, he's.... keeping kosher? No, wait, that's not it.
